Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Add sugar and butter to the pot; stir until butter melts, about 5 minutes. Add milk and cocoa powder. Whisk until smooth and starting to bubble, about 5 minutes. Remove pot and let chocolate mixture cool, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Pour 1/2 cup chocolate mixture into a small bowl. Reserve for drizzling over the cake.

  • Whisk eggs, one at a time, into the remaining chocolate mixture in the pot. Add flour and baking soda; mix thoroughly.

  • Return pot to the cooker. Close and lock lid. Select Cake function according to manufacturer's instructions. Set timer for 30 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Switch to Warm function after timer goes off. Set timer for 30 minutes.

  • Unlock and remove lid; lift out pot. Run a knife around the sides of the pot to release cake. Place a serving plate on top. Invert cake onto the serving plate.

  • Poke holes in the cake with a toothpick or sharp knife. Drizzle reserved chocolate mixture slowly over the cake, letting it absorb the chocolate.
